The Poetics by Lucy Ives & Matthew Conners
The cover is printed on plastic-like paper evoking car manuals, and blind embossed with the enegmatic silhouette of an object. When the book is opened, it can be seen in reverse on the inside cover, nodding to motifs of reflection in Ives’ text.
The book moves back and forth between passages of Connors’ images and text by Ives, with page numbers carefully placed to create a spatial link between the two.
